Once you secure your return date, you can schedule your COVID-19 test for that date up to seven days in advance. Again, be aware of the Cabot Testing Center schedule for January

To promote the health of our campus community during move-in, the university recommends that students take precautions before they travel:

  • Minimize contact with others before you travel, to reduce your risk of exposure to COVID-19.
  • Monitor your symptoms and health with the Daily Wellness Check.
  • Get a COVID-19 PCR test, preferably 72 hours or less prior to your arrival on campus, if you are able. If you test positive, this will allow you to get care and undergo treatment. 
  • Do not travel to campus if you test positive, if you have exposure to someone with COVID-19, or if you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19. Follow your local public health directives to self-isolate or quarantine before you travel to campus.
  • Wear a mask and practice healthy distancing during your travel.

Please note that the official move-in days/times (January 11, 12, and 15 from 8:30am-5:00pm) have passed, and so no non-Northeastern student guests can be signed in at this time.

The current residential guest policy allows a resident student to sign-in up to two Northeastern student guests at a time.

Do I need to schedule my first test in the COVID-19 Test Scheduler during move-in, or is it automatically scheduled for me?

You will need to schedule all of your tests yourself, including your arrival test. Testing dates become available to schedule appointments seven days in advance in the COVID-19 Test Scheduler . If your move-in date is not yet available in the COVID-19 Test Scheduler, please visit the Scheduler seven days before your move-in date to schedule your test as soon as possible. 

What do I need to do before I arrive for my test?

  1. Complete the Expectations for Return to Campus Attestation form.
  2. Complete the COVID-19 testing consent form.
  3. Complete your Daily Wellness Check before you leave for campus and bring a mobile device to show your results.
  4. Make sure you have your Husky Card. If you don’t have your Husky Card in hand, you will need to go pick it up at Curry Student Center West Addition. (Follow the signs for directions!) Remember, you’ll need to wear your Husky Card visibly on a lanyard when you’re on campus. You can bring your own lanyard or pick one up outside of the Cabot Physical Education Center testing site.
  5. Make sure you have your nine-digit Northeastern University ID number. This is available on the Student Hub at and also on your Daily Wellness Check results page.
  6. As always, stay safe! Wear a face mask or face covering, and stay six feet away from others.

What are the testing requirements for students arriving in Boston?

All Northeastern students—from exempt or non-exempt states, domestic or international—will be required to undergo a COVID-19 viral test at Northeastern’s on-campus testing center at Cabot Physical Education Center in Boston.  Details on how to schedule your test will be shared prior to your arrival on campus.

Will family members be able to use Northeastern’s testing site?

Northeastern’s on-campus testing facility is only available to Northeastern students, faculty, and staff.
